What Is Lip Enhancement?
Lip enhancement is a facial cosmetic procedure designed to give patients fuller lips. The procedure can also help to diminish wrinkling near the mouth. There are different lip enhancement methods to choose from, including injectable collagen replacement therapy (lip fillers) and the SurgiSil Perma Facial Implant. The former technique utilizes injectable materials like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®. Collagen replacement therapy carries lower risks, but the results are temporary. Alternately, the latter procedure of lip implantation offers permanent results and carries its own set of risks.
Lip enhancement is performed as either a temporary or a permanent solution to lips that may be small, wrinkled, or asymmetrical in appearance. The procedure is typically considered an elective cosmetic solution for enhancing the lips, but it may also be part of lip reconstruction due to facial trauma, disease, or deformity. Lip enhancement is more common in women, though some men opt to undergo this procedure. It can be modified to ensure an optimized feminine or masculine appearance, depending on a patient’s preferences.
